BA Science (5-12, Biological Science) Courses

WGU Texas offers degrees, not classes. Progress through your degree program is determined by demonstrating your competence on carefully designed assessments and completion of a professional portfolio, capstone, or both.

As a student in this program, you will complete the courses listed below in order to graduate. These courses are required, though you may be able to clear some of the these requirements through transfer credits. Each course contains a study guide and recommended learning resources for you to use. Your assigned mentor will help guide you through the process.

For ease of understanding, WGU Texas has assigned competency units to each of its courses as indicated below. A competency unit is equivalent to a semester credit hour of learning. WGU Texas terms are six months in length. During a typical term, students will be expected to complete at least 12 to 13 competency units. Grades are assigned on a Pass/Not Pass basis; a "Pass" at WGU Texas is equivalent to a letter grade of "B" or better.

Speak to an Enrollment Counselor for more information about these courses.
